Botany Bay , Yesterday


Recommended Posts

Nice to read the success some Raider had on Botany Bay yesterday. Our trip was less successful from a fishing aspect but a great day on the water with Paint_Stripper (Jon).

Mottyman & I met Jon at the Kingie Social & shortly after arranged a day out. Unfortunately David had to withdraw last week so it was Jon & I

Left Cooks just before 7.00 . There was some surface action as we headed for Watts but decided to stay with plan A , trolling the southern cliffs.

Dropped the lures in & trolled down to the lighthouse , result , zip.

Went out wide for some bottom bashing , no luck.

Mid morning & the wind was freshening so motored back to join the masses in the protection of Nth head.

A few drifts saw a large Parrot fish on board , released & returned

Down with the pick & commenced a berley trail. Generally very slow but managed one jacket.

Jon had only been to the Bay once before & with the fishing slow decided to do a cruise around the northern shore line on a bit of a site seeing trip.

On the way in stopped at the runway where Jon picked up a nice Whiting. As the fish box was rather barren decided to let it go.

Whilst , in our case , the fish were not cooperative , we had a terrific day on the water & look forward to our next outing :yahoo::yahoo:
